NEW GUIDE: Adafruit Metro M7 microSD #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit
Adafruit, DigiKey, Metro M7, NXP!
Your favorite electronics companies have collaborated to make the fastest Metro ever! For this new product, DigiKey, NXP and Adafruit all contributed the stuff the stuff they know best: shipping parts fast (DigiKey), designing microcontrollers (NXP) and crafting great products with tutorials (that’s us, Adafruit!) We teamed up to present to you the Adafruit Metro M7 with microSD! An NXP iMX RT1011 microcontroller powers this board with a 500 MHz ARM Cortex M7 processor. As you can expect, there’s a micro SD card slot wired up right on board so that you can read files or data log easily to removable, wear-leveled storage.
The Adafruit Metro M7 with microSD guide has everything you need to get started with your board including pinouts details, CircuitPython install instructions and demos, reset info, and downloads resources. The CircuitPython Essentials section includes an SD card demo page to get you started using that feature of this Metro. If you picked up one of these nice red boards, be sure to check out this guide!
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
